Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta TWELVE THE LETHBRIDGB HEPxALD '4LEKANDEM TILLOCff 'The hlstorv of our is t .recora "of achievements' ot men iuid women. We luay take a history of Canada aud read it, and fail to recog- nize that il Yecords llio lives of indi- viduals. We read the biography ot a statesman and find that it covers a period of history more thau does a work intended wholly to cover tho actual history of a coLatry. We make, these observations after having read the latest biography ot a Cana- dian statesman. "The LI to of Sir ander Tilloch Gait" written by Profes- sor Skelion ot.Queeu's University, who is also writing tlie authorized biography of the lato Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

To those of us whojive in Southern Alberta. Ihe life of Sir Alexander Gait Is of extreme interest. He was the! founder of Lethbrldge, and the pioneer iu coal mining' and irrigation in this com Irv Prioi to time, wproply! had ranchinx and fur whiskey Iradins.

The sou followed the father in the direc- tion of tho settlement of that beauti- ful iisid prosperous section ot Quebec, the Eastern Townships. The obstacles young Cull met in the Sherbrooko were far greater, than those he had to contend with in his later-! days In western Canada, hut in both' Instances, 0110 In early lifo and the other in later life, two of his outsiand-: ing characteristics were emphasized. 'faith and Obstacles only' stimulated him to greater effort. Wtieu others wilted, Alexander Gait braced up aiid was all the keener to make things go.

TUESDAY HEALTH TALK NO. 7 (BY HYRUM SMITH, D.C.) -YorX Medical Journal Feb. S, 1910, said tliat during the In- fluenza epidemic It.'jvns proved.that where health was'sound and resist- ance good, the disease had.no chance. Hospital corps experiment- ed .with 100 (Volunteers who were sound and. fit. Their throats and noses were sprayed hourly by live cultures of .influenza baccilla, but not a single'case of Influenza, developed. This Is conclusive proof thal'disease is not .caused by germs, and It Is good proof of the chiropractic dis- covery that dlseasftls caused by nerve pressure; which reduces" nervous, force in the affected organs'and tls- sues. In other words, when a Joint of (.ho backbone becomes out oE alignment, it causes pressure on spinal nerves and the organs and tissues thus .robbed of ner- vous vitality, are subject, to disease. The way to bring health reserves up to 100 per cent efficiency is .to restore tho nervous balanco of every part ot the body by cnlro- practlc aplnal adjustments. If -._. lungs, kidneys and bowels are active, the sudden chills of win- tor and fall havo no power to throw you Tout i reservea'are r on a larger scale rojght not hare heard OL Tor many years. That Sir. Alexander Gait's.fallh and foresight were warranted is amply proven by tha wonderful development that has taken plsco lii all the sec- lions of Canada where ,ho was Inti- mately interested. Tho Eastern Town- ships ot Quebec cannot bo eic-elled to- day as a farming country, and progressive industrial centre.
